Barcelona reveal that Sergio Busquets suffered "a hairline fracture on the fifth toe of his right foot" during Wednesday's Champions League clash with Chelsea.

Barcelona have revealed that midfielder Sergio Busquets suffered "a hairline fracture on the fifth toe of his right foot" during Wednesday's Champions League last-16 second leg against Chelsea.

Busquets limped off in the second half of his team's 3-0 victory, which ensured that they would progress to the quarter-finals of the competition courtesy of a 4-1 success.

The Spain international is now facing "approximately three weeks" on the sidelines, which makes him a doubt for the first leg of the Champions League last-eight tie, which will take place on either April 3 or April 4.

"Tests have confirmed that Sergio Busquets has a hairline fracture on the fifth toe of his right foot. He will be out for approximately three weeks," read a statement from Barcelona.

Busquets will also miss Spain's upcoming international friendlies against Germany and Argentina.
